Henrico Police receive donated canine ballistic vest


The Henrico County Police Division Feb. 15 received a ballistic vest for one of its newest canines after a donation initiated by the Cumberland Hospital for Adolescents in New Kent County.

The Cumberland Hospital of Adolescents made a monetary donation to the New Kent County Sheriff’s Office in honor of Sarah Ann McLaughlin, who was a communications officer with the New Kent Sheriff’s Office and the daughter of Sheriff Joe McLaughlin Jr. and his wife, Robin. She also was an avid animal enthusiast, and their donation was intended for the purchase of a bullet resistant vest for a canine. The New Kent Sheriff’s Office does not have a canine, so Sheriff Joe McLaughlin Jr. offered to purchase a vest for a Henrico County police canine. > Read more.

Science plays a critical role in racing all types of cars – and some local students learned that firsthand recently.

Students at John G. Wood, a nonprofit alternative school located on the campus of Virginia Home for Boys and Girls, applied science to cars they made using pine wood in their Career and Technical Education (CTE) class, then raced the cars to demonstrate the principals of motion.

In all, 16 cars – carefully crafted for speed and looks – competed. Cars could not exceed a five-ounce weight limit; any added weight could not hang over the front or rear of the car; and all cars had to use the wheels, axles and block given. > Read more.
